2012 book 313

Tamara Ireland Stone's Time Between Us
This was a perfectly serviceable YA version of The Time Traveler's Wife (I actually hate to even say that, because mysterious boy's deal isn't confirmed till more than a third of the way through, but it's in the official descriptions, so . . . ). Actually, the writing was pretty good, the main character was decent, and I enjoyed it until the end, which I was really hoping would go somewhere else entirely. Because it was sooooo stupid! (I am, like, angry about the end.) Plus, there are hardly any details about the 90s besides occasional references to Pearl Jam (the guy time-travels from 2012 to 1995) and many questions are left unanswered. Actually basically every question is left unanswered. Like, the guy just decides to be a time traveler? How does that work? Can't you at least give him a weird gene like every other author? BUT if you like YA romance this might be for you. B/B-.
